Dear Little P...

closet
Dear Little P.,
Your 36th week of living in my tummy is coming to a close in a few days. You will be considered full-term soon, and that means you can come at any time! Not that I'm pressuring you. I'm just excited to see you in the flesh and know you are safe into the world. Now that it's closer to your arrival, I find myself terrified that something is going to go wrong. We've gotten so close now, and I just want to know that you will get here safely and everything will be ok. It's so reassuring when you wiggle around inside; reminding me that you are fine...that I don't have to worry so much. So thank you for that, I appreciate that you "call home" and let me know how you are doing. I've started nesting and getting all of your belongings ready for your use...it's nice to have some extra energy for once! I've now washed all of your clothes, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, sheets...pretty much everything made of fabric.
piles of onesies
I've also washed all of your bottles and bottle parts, pacifiers, and anything else that will touch your mouth. When I finished hanging up your outfits that you got from your shower I had to step back and marvel that these weren't just baby clothes...they're YOUR baby clothes. We'll actually get to SEE you in them. Since then, I go up and peek into your closet just to be that much closer to you visually. It seems silly, I know...to get emotional at a bunch of hanging clothes. I guess it's the symbol of what it all means. As I was feverishly washing and sorting through your onesies (everything is also organized by size because the nesting instinct knows no boundaries) I came upon this one...freshly washed and ready to be folded. It's the only item of clothing that has these words, the first time I've seen these words and know that I'm the one they mean:
i love mommy
I had to sit down as my throat tightened. Fat tears slid down my cheeks. A little piece of pink cloth with some simple words on it never meant so much to me. You are almost here, my precious Little P.
Please know that Mommy loves you more than anything and I would sew that on a trillion pieces of cloth to prove it.
Love always, forever and please be careful,
Mama

Oh my gosh! Can you believe you're almost there! I think the drawer full of little baby clothes is one of the best parts of pregnancy. :)

What a sweet post. Reminds me of when my first was almost here and I couldn't wait to hold her in my arms and kiss her face. (BTW- I have that shirt from the previous post... I can't wait for it to fit tighter because then that will mean #2 is almost here!) We are all so excited for you!

Hi Erin! Thanks! I'm not sure, I got them as part of a gift for my baby shower. If I find out, I will be sure to post a comment here. :)

I love the striped onesie in chocolate and pink... What brand is this ? BTW, I found cute onesies on http://www.reformschoolrules.com/ :)

Hi Lor!
Thanks for the link! I've always liked that website. The striped pink/brown onesie is from Dwell Studio for Target.

That was just such a beautiful post, your daughter is so very lucky to get to have a mom like you. I am keeping you both in, my thoughts because I know how anxious these last couple of weeks can make you feel. So I am wishing you peace and joy. Hang in there, she is almost here.

This is the time that you should look back at the start of your blog and see for yourself that you have come such a long way! So don't be worried about something going wrong now, she obviously really wants to be here for sticking in there for so long.

You should be really proud of what you've achieved now. You've really earned it :)

Very cute green dress. Is it vintage?
